Norwich take on Barnsley at home this weekend, in Alan Irvine’s second match in charge, and the first in which he will be in full control of the team selection.

Norwich come into this match eighth in the league, their season seemingly over as the play-offs look to be out of sight. They are still on the hunt for a permanent replacement for Alex Neil following his sacking last week. Barnsley sit in 11th place, without a win in their last five matches, and will hope to steal three points against an out of form City side.


Norwich have a surprising amount of history with Barnsley; with a high number of former players having played for and managed Barnsley at one point in their career.

Norwich have lost only one in their last twelve matches against Barnsley, but that’s no reason to be complacent, so let’s look at some familiar faces.
